Here are 12 reasons why you need to:
◆ Today your customers/clients expect to engage with you online – even if it’s to share thoughts, ideas, opinions or have a chat
◆ According to Harris Interactive Survey, “More than half 54% of all online adults said social media content has influenced their online transactions. Can your customers buy from you on-line?
◆ If you don’t have a Social Media Marketing strategy, you’ll soon have more time on your hands. Do a search “Consumer Behavior & Social Media” on Google to discover for yourself

◆ Social media is word of mouth on steroids – referrals, viral, being the talk of the town, if you don’t know what they are saying how can you respond or improve your business?
◆ What’s your vision for your business – perhaps it’s time to write it down and make it BIGGER
◆ One thing we can learn from the Dell’s and Zappo’s social media implementations is to involve everyone. Dell uses a couple of hundred people in their efforts and Zappos has something like 90% of their employees tweeting. Develop social media guidelines and engage and empower your employees across the board to take part. You may find yourself fielding a much richer, more meaningful, more rewarding social media experience as a result.
◆ You’ll have more time to market and attract new customers
◆ Are there new markets/niches that you could serve online?
◆ Check out David Meerman on Viral Marketing: How to Create a World Wide Rave
◆ Do a survey of what tools your customers/clients are using and start using them
◆ Which would you rather be in an 8 track player world? or Be in the IPod world?

    Very informative article. Social media marketing has taken the online business and consumer world by storm. It’s an extremely affective way to broadcast your message and help others. You want to involve your community as much as possible and limit the “sell, sell, sell” mentality b/c you will be quickly written off. When you can learn to offer valuable information and advice you will then see the overall benefits.

    Social media is the new popular thing and very important in its own right.. The advent of sites like Facebook, Myspace, and Linkedin resulted in something that can be seen as a power exchange.
